Re: [vox-tech] Help with removal of a stubborn debian package

Thanks Stephen. I wound up using the geniussytems.net apt source (the once
listed on Debian Planet), and it worked great. I followed Rick Moen's
advice and edited /var/lib/dpkg/status, removing the kdm package entry.
That cleared up the dpkg issue. Once done, I made sure KDE2 was completely
removed from my system, added the aforementioned apt source to my
sources.list file and reinstalled KDE3.  That worked like a champ! It's
nice to have KDE3 finally!:-)
